An issue that strikes America every year.
The Issue of Wasting
What we can do
Upcycling is a solve to people wasting items that can easily be reused. Upcycling is taking something that has a purpose that is no longer necessary, and using it as something else. Like taking an old pair of jeans, and making them into jean shorts. Or taking an old oatmeal box and making a handmade drum. The possibilities are endless. It is a fun way to occupy your time and help the environment while doing so.
Recycling is something we have all heard of. It is a way of taking something like an empty bottle, and recycling it, which means it is taken to a facility and made into something else with machinery.
Other Actions we can Take
